Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract additional charges. Examples include the following:
- Private medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Passport signing
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Private certificates
- Travel vaccinations
- To whom it may concern letters
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
The completion of any private work has to be done outside of the clinicians NHS work. Most GP's have a very heavy workload and can work up to 60 hours per week. We therefore have a time frame of 6 to 8 weeks for the completion of any private reports.
